  • The Wellington Advertiser - CLASSY LANE STABLES FIRE: Total losses may surpass $6 million
    to warm up In addition some of the hand lines were freezing up At the same time Goode said many horse owners trainers and staff arrived on the scene as firefighters battled the blaze Even as Goode presented his report on Jan 6 he noted Puslinch firefighters were still at the site and were expected to be there until at least that night We can confirm 43 horses perished in this fire most were standardbred said Goode who noted one owner had two horses in the barn each valued at 1 4 million This is a multi million dollar loss the largest in the history of our township As far as the total loss Goode said there are estimates of 4 million to 6 million but I think we are going to be well surpassing that He noted the department was working with the Ontario Fire Marshal s office which had three staff members at the site In addition there were staff from the Ontario Ministry of Agriculture and members of the OPP on the scene Everyone is doing their best to determine a cause said Goode He told council Captain John Uptegrove did a good job containing the fire and suppressing it so the fire can be investigated Goode noted he has fielded many calls from insurers throughout the U S looking for positive identification of the animals We have University of Guelph veterinarians going out doing assessments for testing There is a lot of forensic work to be done as well said Goode He told council the experience has been emotionally taxing all those involved The shock hasn t hit quite yet he said adding three months ago the department had done some training at Classy Lane at that exact same barn with the exact same horses When you do that and there is some interaction it impacts the members Goode noted the owners are devastated words can t describe it and he anticipates the investigation will take a considerable amount of time Councillor Susan Fielding agreed this is certainly a sad day for Puslinch and for those across the province involved in the horse racing industry Fielding was in British Columbia when she heard the news on television Especially seeing it from far away I was really proud of the professionalism of our fire department and I think you represented us very well she said In this tragedy Puslinch can hold its head up high Except for the barn itself firefighters were able to save everything else Fielding said the ripple effect will go on because the horses take so much training so even if you get the money you can t just replace the horse Councillor Matthew Bulmer said he could hear in Goode s voice how this had been physically and emotionally taxing Councillor Ken Roth thanked firefighters and said Its always tough when it is animals at the same time we have to be very thankful no human lives were lost Councillor Wayne Stokley

  • The Wellington Advertiser - Combining tradition and competition: Group aims to spread popularity of carriage driving
    It s not hard to learn but it s like most things the more you learn the more you can learn You never cap out what you can teach your horse Shute says For many carriage drivers the historical aspect is part of the sport s appeal and finding vintage clothing and antique carriages is half the fun There s so much tradition involved in carriage driving everything has a purpose she said If you were a fine lady driving to tea you needed a driving apron or lap robe to keep you clean brown gloves and brown reins even if your harness is black You wouldn t want to get to the tea party and find out you had black hands And the hat is just an excuse to have a really nice collection of hats While some higher level competitions require specific dress Shute says at their level all that s needed is the basics an apron brown gloves and a hat They are also flexible in terms of vehicle and horse If you come with a metal vehicle that s okay as long as it s safe Same with the harness it doesn t have to be leather as long as it s safe for the horse and safe for the driver she says People come with horses with ponies with donkeys and occasionally there s a mule that shows up We try to be as inclusive as possible Equine partners are expected to be able to stand quietly and have a good walk with the ability to move from a working trot to a lengthen trot with ease One of the unexpected benefits of carriage driving is that it makes you a better rider says Shute and teaches participants to build stronger systems of communication with their animals We ve removed part of how you communicate with your animal Now it s all done with your hands and so you learn to be able to manipulate what your horse does in the carriage itself she says If I want to move my horse to the right or the left I don t have my legs to do it with so it educates riders to used their hands more effectively in conjunction with their legs Carriage driving is also an alternative for those who have difficulty riding astride due to injury or age while still providing a level of competition and enjoyment If you have a 25 year old horse that isn t athletic enough to do riding a lot of them take to driving as an older animal because you re not balancing the weight of a rider and it s easier work Shute says For those who aren t riding anymore because they ve had hips replaced or they re finding it difficult on their knees this is absolutely easier on your body Because carriage driving can be associated with the Mennonite community there are a number of misconceptions surrounding the sport Shute says it
